Personal profile

Previous positions

Australian Research Council Future Fellow

Australian Research Council Post-Doctoral Fellow

European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO) Long Term Fellow


Nic Taylor completed his undergraduate studies and MSc at Massey University, New Zealand and in 2000 moved to The University of Western Australia to undertake his PhD. After his PhD he was awarded and European Molecular Biology Organization Long Term Fellowship to study at the Department of Plant Sciences at the University of Oxford, UK. He was recruited back to UWA in 2006 to the newly established ARC Centre of Excellence in Plant Energy Biology where he has held ARC Post-Doctoral and Future Fellowships. Here he has applied and developed a wide range of quantitative mass spectrometry approaches to quantify proteins, lipids and metabolites and used these in a wide range of research projects. His lab seeks gain a comprehensive understanding of how metabolites, proteins and lipids influence yield and how plant cells respond to extremes of temperature and salinity.
